This is dense enough to protect the floor from scratches and indentations. Make sure that the felt rug pad is a 40 ounce, referring to the amount of fiber there is per square yard of pad. The higher the ounce, the more dense the carpet pad. If the rug tends to slip, then a felt and natural rubber rug pad is ideal. Here, the key is to make sure it is natural rubber as opposed to the chemical sprays that look and feel like rubber but actually could severely harm the floor.
